AccountingWeb reports that there will be a strike by HMRC staff on 30th June.
PCS conducted a strike ballot and 60% of a 32% turnout (19% of the membership) voted to go on strike in protest over pension changes, job cuts and a pay freeze.
The strike will cause delays in answering phone and postal queries.
Given that taxpayers are "customers", those who are dissatisfied with further delays can simply take their business elsewhere;).
PCS warn of possible further strikes in the autumn.
Tax does have to be taxing.
